One of my frustrations with students researching their Medical Career is the lack of good quality internet resources. This Internet Scavenger Hunt will lead them through good quality websites including BLS.gov and explorehealthcareers.org. They will be able to become familiar with the sites and the services they offer. Along the way, they will learn some valuable facts on various medical careers as well as understand why a career in healthcare is a great choice.
The students will answer 14 multiple choice questions that will require them to dig around on the websites and interpret data from graphs. At the end of the worksheet, they will use their answers to fill in the phrase "Medicine is only for those who cannot imagine doing anything else."
This makes a fantastic activity to complete before they begin their research!
